The houses are elevated from the valley floor and surrounded by marginally higher, off-set woodland. This provides 360 degrees of views and the properties are not overlooked. A very special situation. A rustic garage/wood store/workshop is situated in a sheltered spot under very large, mature pine trees. There is, what was once, a tennis court which could be restored. There are approximately 19 acres of combined woodland, meadow land and gardens, abundant in wildlife. For a purchaser really interested in gardening there are countless possible development opportunities. However if you like the natural look, as do we, there are masses of wild flowers, orchids and trees
The woodland offers the opportunity of developing outdoor activities and is of course a source of timber for winter heating.
The owners have made an easily maintained path (cut with the lawn mower) around the perimeter of much of the land, which takes about 10 minutes to walk.
There is what, with the aid of fencing, can be a paddock in front of the Grange and also a small stable, suitable for a pony or goats.
